This Lisbon apartment uses charcoal-gray sliding wall to divide the public living spaces from the flat’s private quarters.
The sliding door opens to reveal a square hallway. “It’s a dark box that on the one hand opens up to the light and sound coming from the street and on the other hand protects the bedrooms from all the agitation,” architect José Andrade Rocha says. Additional sliding doors lead to the master bedroom and bathroom.
The architect of this 592-square-foot Tel Aviv apartment chose glass to segment space because it takes up fewer centimeters than constructed walls, thus helping the room feel larger. Curtains can be drawn closed for privacy.
In the bedroom, floor-to-ceiling cabinets with depressed handles serve as a de facto wall leading out to the main area. They contain spaces for hanging clothes and storage.
Off the living room of a renovated Phoenix home, two small bedrooms and a bathroom can be reached through sliding doors adorned with a cheerful pattern of the Moroccan cement tiles.
Custom curtains by Manhattan Textiles delineate the kitchen and sleeping room from the main space in this Wisconsin cabin.
